• Client Portals: what is it and how it benefits YOU

At one point or another, most of our clients have heard us ask the phrase: “Would you be interested in signing up for a client portal?” While many have agreed, a good amount are hesitant. What even is a client portal and how does it benefit you, the client?

DSJCPA uses a client portal (“the Portal”) which allows you to upload, access, and receive all of your files electronically. We have found that clients with a Client Portal receive their documents faster and enjoy the ability to access their documents anywhere and anytime. Especially with the current COVID-19 pandemic, this tool has assisted many of our clients with both upload and receipt of files securely and also facilitates an efficient and paperless tax return process.

Our Client Portal is…

  • The most secure way to share information between client and accountant
  • Quicker and more efficient than mailing
  • Entirely virtual and safer during the pandemic
  • Easy to use and easy to set up

CPA Practice Advisor’s 2020 reviews of client portals puts it best: “Take steps [now] for the times to come. The future will be faster, smarter, even more prone to hackers, with [greater] expectations. Virtual accounting is a trend that has arrived.”
